It was great yesterday to welcome the Minister of State for Housing and Planning Brandon Lewis to New Islington – to see our new modular House (you can watch the film about House here).


I enjoyed showing him around the scheme and hearing his comments on how our work sits within the Government’s vision for housing. See what he had to say below. And in the meantime, if you want to come and see our hoUSe you can register your interest here.


Brandon Lewis MP on House: “Manchester has a rich history of innovation, so it’s great to be here and see that spirit is alive and well with Urban Splash’s new modular housing concept. This Government has got Britain building, encouraging a new generation of house builders to pursue their ideas and come up with new and exciting ways to build homes.


“Urban Splash is a prime example of that and I want to see other new entrants follow their lead and break into the market. That way we can ensure a thriving industry that delivers the high-quality homes that hard-working people rightly deserve.”


The Minister‘s visit was led by Urban Splash Chairman Tom Bloxham MBE, who said: “House will bring a new ideology and way of thinking to the UK residential market and I am delighted that we have already sold 75% of the available homes even before we have officially launched. Providing affordability and good design is our main objective and I look forward to welcoming more people to this site – and other planned hoUSe sites – in the coming months.”
